The house itself is located in a small village with 400 residents, between Martigny and Verbier, ideally suited for summer and winter activities. It is also perfectly suited for relaxing amidst a personal, stylish atmosphere. The apartment has a living room, a large bedroom, a small bedroom, a completely equipped kitchen, a bathroom with shower, and a separate WC. The living room has a cozy corner couch with a table and armchair, a dining table, books to browse, games for 2 to 6 people, a TV / radio, a telephone, a video recorder, and a CD player. The kitchen is equipped with all imaginable utensils and equipment, and the bathroom was freshly renovated in 2005. Pets are welcome.

Excellent! clean, comfy and charming

  • 5 of 5

I rented the house for 1 week for my family coming from Brasil. Ami was always very easy to reach by email and long prior the arrival he sent a letter with all the tips and instructions about the house, it was very kind and useful.

The apartment is just as described: comfortable, well organized and maintained, with all you need for cooking and everything else (hair-dryer, plenty of towels), we particularly really enjoyed the decoration, very original.

It's amazing the amount of panflets from the region he gathered, we did have our plans of places to visit, but we changed according to some interesting options we found there.

It was a very pleasant stay for my family and they said they would definitely recommend and come back in another opportunity.

We would say the only down side was the neighbor who parked her car everyday occupying the 2 parking spots in front of the house (with only one car) so they had to park a bit further in the street. But this didn't affect the amazing time they had in the house.

Great location! Best price!

  • 5 of 5

One thing I love about this apartment is that it's very easy to find. We didn't have a hard time locating it. The host was great and provided us with the necessary information that made our vacation very smooth. I think we will be coming back here again and again. Can't wait!

Excellent location, cosy apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation in this apartment. It was off-season hiking vacation, the weather was unpredictable, and we looked for an apartment close to main roads, so we can change our plans according to the weather. We got all we expected for. Though low beams did cause some problems for my tall husband, the apartment is cosy, clean and well maintained, has everything you may ever need - fully equipped kitchen, nice crockery, a lot of tourist information b??klets, even a sewing kit! The location is unrivaled. We were snowshoeing one day near Chamonix and hiking Torrent Neuf near Sion or ladders of Albinen on the other days. Gorges du Durnand are just around the corner.

Owner doesn't live on site, but has provided us with full information, answered all our questions and even phoned on the day of our arrival to check that everything is OK.

Thank you, Ami, for the good service and nice apartment. We hope to return one day with the kids (so we can use both bedrooms!) to show them Valais, we have a lot of routes untraveled.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was easy to find and we were very happy with it, we found it spacious for two couples and it had everything you will need, we have never seen such copious amounts of towels etc in a rental property. The rental is within easy reach of many fantastic places and is situated just off the main road in a quiet street, you can even walk to the Gorges as the start of them is situated at the end of the road, all in all we hade a fantastic week there and the attentive owner even rang us up one evening to see if everything was to our liking. If we were visiting this area again l would not hesitate to rent the property again as l feel it was real value for money no hidden charges and final cleaning fees unlike some.

The only very slight fault l could make is watch your head on some of the low beams as me being quite tall had a few conflicts with them, but towards the end of the week you have got used to them.

Ami thanks for the rent of your property and we will certainly tell friends about it.

Comfortable Apartment in an Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

We came in this apartment for a week and we rented a car. The apartment was easy to find and from where it is located we could easily visit several sites (Lake Geneve, Gruyeres & Broc, Fribourg, Chamonix-Mont Blanc, Nendaz, Sion, Leukerbad and Zermatt).

Before choosing this apartment I did an extensive search and I selected this specific apartment in view of its location and price. The apartment offers good value for money since it is of a good size and is equiped with everything.

The owner provided a lot of information and we could easily communicate with her through e-mails. As it was agreed we paid around 3 weeks in advance and the transaction was smooth.

The apartment was as described and everything was clean.

The apartment is very comfortable even for kids (we had 2 small kids) but the only advice I give to people with small infants is to always lock the apartment's door. There are not a lot of steps to reach the apartment however if they open the door obviously they can easily fall. Otherwise it is totally safe for kids and since the kitchen is well equipped one could eaily prepare food for babies/infants (food processor, microwave etc). Our kid also enjoyed running in the surrounding greenery.

We would surely love to come again and I recommend this apartment to others in view of its facilities, location and price.

Car: necessary

'Les Myosotis' is located in the village of Les Valettes along the road from the Rhone valley (Martigny) to the St. Berhard Pass, at the foot of the Catogne. One can hike straight from the house. With the car, you can reach Martigny in 5, Verbier and Sion in 20, Lake Geneva (Montreux) in 30, Lausanne in 50, Chamonix (F) or Evian (F) or Aosta (I) in 60, and Geneva in 75 minutes. 'Likely the most beautiful, most varied, best connected, with the most beautiful view of the entire Alps,' the ski region of Verbier is easily reached via the cable railway in Le Châble which is just 12 minutes away (free parking). Hikes that go straight from the front door: Bovernier's vineyards, over the Chemin to Martigny (famous art museum with high-ranking, and much discussed exhibits), up into the high valley of Champex.

Ski: The village of 'Le Châble' is just 12 minutes away and features a large, free parking lot at the base terminal of the gondola lift. This takes you up over Verbier without stopping, to the ski paradise at the 'Les Attelas' peak terminal; at no extra charge, providing you have a ski pass. It couldn't be easier. You can save yourself a twisting drive up to Verbier, plenty of time, and last but not least, expensive parking fees.
